has it increased? >> i will take that question. we did not present a budget at this time -- the last budget we have was presented in december in the attachment you have to the commission. we have just completed the schematic design, and we have -- we are just going through the initial review of the cost estimate right now. it is a little too early to comment whether it has gone up or down at this point. >> have we found any additional money? >> [inaudible] [laughter] know, the answer is no.
[laughter] >> you heard it from the top. [laughter] >> i will put it another way. we have asked additional sources. we have not received a yes yet. >> and i see that the demolished man of a little bit of pier 29 is different from the last presentation. why was that decision made? >> that was part of the america's cup -- what we call the america's cup 34 program. there will be a spectator area at the start and finish line of the race. so that is for the beginning and end of the race. it is a beautiful area out there, and i think it gives the court some opportunity for future use of that space.
-- it gives the port some opportunity for future use of that space. >> that dovetails into questions i had about some complementary use with the america's cup. are there any aspects of design that would make sense to incorporate, either for america's cup or not, as the case may be? >> regarding accommodating the america's cup, the project is being accelerated to accommodate america's cup, and the shed at the end of pier 27, the remainder which we did not anticipate falling down, is being removed for the spectator function, and squaring off of that historical structure had already been compromised back in the 1960's when the the shed for 27 was added on. it is being squared off in a matter that we hope to be consistent with the secretary's
standards, and that area is being cleared. the actual construction of the terminal -- there is nothing being done differently to the terminal specifically for the america's cup. rather, we are putting in their for their use at that time. they may request some minor additions with utilities, and we would be asking them to finance that, and we have been meeting to determine what if anything may need to happen for that project use. >> i think this is a good time to insert into the record again that this is all speculative that we are talking about because we are just now embarking on environmental review. so those products both have to undergo environmental review and have been joined, so what we are proposing, including the removal, would be analyzed according to the ceqa process. so there are still changes that could come out of the process. for purposes of today, we are
>> i work with the department of environment and we are recycling oil. thank you. we can go into a refinery and we can use it again. they do oil changes and sell it anyway, so now they know when a ticket to a. hal>> to you have something you want to get rid of? >> why throw it away when you can reuse it?
>> it can be filtered out and used for other products. >> [speaking spanish] >> it is going to be a good thing for us to take used motor oil from customers. we have a 75-gallon tank that we used and we have someone take it from here to recycle. >> so far, we have 35 people. we have collected 78 gallons, if not more. these are other locations that you can go. it is absolutely free. you just need to have the location open. you are set to go.
>> hello. 9 judge terri l. jackson. the court is now recruiting prospective civil grand jurors. our goal is to develop a pool of candidates that is inclusive of all segments of our city's population. >> the jury conducts investigations and publishes findings and recommendations. these reports them become a key part of the civic dialog on how we can make san francisco a better place to live and work. >> i want to encourage anyone that is on the fence, is considering participating as a grand jury member, to do so. >> so if you are interested in our local city government and would like to work with 18 other enthusiastic citizens committed to improving its operations, i encourage you to consider applying for service on the civil grand jury. >> for more information, visit the civil grand jury website at
